Chief amends court employee travel restrictions in light of changes in CDC pandemic reports

Regular News

Florida-Supreme-Court-SealChief Justice Charles Canady issued a new order May 14 amending earlier limits on court employee personal travel to regions in the United States where community spread of coronavirus is widespread.

That restriction now is obsolete in light of Centers for Disease Control reports showing community spread exists nationwide.

Instead, court employees under the amended order must report certain kinds of personal travel and may be required to work at home or observe similar quarantine measures for periods of time afterward that are recommended by the CDC or other health authorities.

Chief Justice Canady will review this and other COVID-19 orders as the pandemic emergency develops and will modify or extend them if needed.

Statewide and local court emergency orders and advisories are available on the Supreme Court’s website:
